“SOL” would be installed on the grounds of Palm Springs City Hall, in accordance to the community’s use of the grounds.
With “SOL,” the artist questions our consumption of energy but also proposes a solution that would be of benefit to
humanity and the environment – in that regard, the word SOL does not only refer to the main energy source for our planet,
the sun, but also, in a play of words where “sol” can be read to sound as “soul,” the viewers are encouraged to connect
with their own source of power.
